PSYCHOTHERAPY FOR BORDERLINE PERSONALITY
TFP is a sophisticated new variant of psychodynamic interventions centering on the analysis of the transference. Its main goal is to bring a patient's unconscious conflicts to the surface so that they can be actively worked through by the client and therapist within a rigorous clinical framework.
An elegantly humane yet clinically rigorous approach to interventions with one of the most challenging categories of personality disorders, Psychotherapy for Borderline Personality is an important professional resource for all mental health professionals.
